When a couple decides that it is time to raise the family, the desire for it to happen as soon as possible is also inevitable. At first, we believe in ease and that in the first month the positive will happen, a fact that does not always happen. Therefore, the intensity and quantity of sex tends to increase to achieve the goal. But does too much sex hinder pregnancy after all?
Some experts believe it does, and that excessive sex can weaken semen and decrease effectiveness , thus further decreasing the chances of becoming pregnant since the sperm will be weakened to reach the egg.
They also point out that the semen takes time to recover and advise that sexual intercourse occurs on average 3 to 4 times a week, giving intervals between days, especially in the week of the fertile period between the 10th and 16th days of the menstrual cycle.
More up-to-date studies, on the other hand, believe that too much sex does not hinder pregnancy and that semen should not be “saved” in order to make them stronger. The more sexual intercourse you have, the more likely you are to become pregnant, especially if you are in your fertile period.
And they complement with another important information, pointing out that the more the man ejaculates the stronger his sperm will become ! Another detail is that the sperm when in contact with the cervix release some substances that will “prepare the ground” to receive the next sperm, further increasing the chances of becoming pregnant.
Some couples imagine that going without sexual intercourse for a period and waiting for the week of the fertile period will be more successful, believing that the sperm are stronger. And believe me, it is the opposite that happens !!!
The longer the sperm is stored, the less its motility and agility to reach the egg. So date, whenever you feel like it and do not save pleasure !!
Tip: An extra little help for tempting couples is the use of fertility-friendly lubricating gels, such as FamiGel. The gel that plays the role of the woman’s mucus and even increases the mobility of sperm.
Always remembering that sex is good and tasty when done with pleasure and without obligations !! Forget what you are looking for and enjoy every moment !! After all, generating a child through a moment of pleasure and a lot of love, is much tastier isn’t it?
Does Anxiety Hinder Getting Pregnant?
Anxiety is such a bad feeling that I believe it gets in the way of all areas of our life and when it comes to getting pregnant, the situation gets even worse. The anxiety may lead to psychological pressure and sex before so pleasant between the couple ends up becoming a must for the sole focus of reproduction and it completely loses pleasure.
This pressure generated by anxiety is responsible for several fights between tempting couples and that may even be responsible for the end of such a beautiful relationship before the decision to want to have a child.
In addition to the discomfort between the couple, anxiety can generate a hormonal disorder in the woman and totally alter the menstrual cycle, triggering irregular cycles and hindering the counting of fertile days and in some cases even inhibiting ovulation.
In addition, the tense body increases the release of adrenaline and oxytocin, which ends up hindering the fertilization of the egg and when it occurs it causes uterine contraction, causing the fertilized egg to be expelled naturally.
So some women try to feel the symptoms of pregnancy like nausea, tenderness of the breasts and dizziness, but soon the menstruation goes down normally and the positive goes down the drain again.
And the fact is the woman even gets pregnant, but with the large amount of oxytocin generated by anxiety, the fertilized egg is released and the pregnancy does not succeed.
The man also suffers from anxiety and pressure from the woman !! Anxiety mainly affects erectile dysfunction and drastically reduces the ability and locomotion of sperm, in addition to decreasing libido and presenting problems with ejaculation.
If the couple is more than 35 years old and attempts exceed 6 months, seek the help of a specialist. Complementary exams and proper treatment can be the solution and the positive can come sooner than you think. Do not allow anxiety to disturb a moment that must be very loving !!
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
